I just bought a cheapo Windows 10 tablet with a full size USB3.0 port hoping I would be able to copy footage from sd cards over to a USB HDD. I have a whole bunch of 2.5" drives around so I bought a USB3.0 to SATA adapter. The adapter is a powered adapter to ensure the spinning rust always have enough juice. The adapter is working at full speed on my MBP. When plugging it in directly into the windows tablet the device is not recognized in the device manager at all. If you unplug and replug you may get a message saying the USB device failed and Windows couldn't understand what it was. I have tried attaching through other USB3.0 hubs with the same result. I have tried re-installing the driver. I have tried disabling power management for the usb and the usb mass storage device. I have also tried using a USB2.0 hub - And it works!! I understand the controller is different (or it's just a driver, isn't it?) between 2.0 & 3.0. The device is working perfectly on 2.0 (just not as fast) so it appears all the hardware is OK. Any idea how I can get this to work on USB3.0 as well??
